    For what reason do they need to cut down?

    Because that's $1500 spread out over a certain period of time, and there are plenty of other things coming up (MP-10, Hot Toys' Superman, TFC Hercules and other numerous Third Party product, etc) that I'd rather put $200 towards instead of a random repaint that will immediately go in storage once it arrives in the mail.

    That about sums it up for me. Just a bit too much money to ask for a novelty paint job, even if it looks good.

    Do people honestly believe that Has/Tak doing black repaints actually take away from them doing something more unique? Black Convoy's are no different than repainting a Starscream into 10 differrent colors and giving each repaint a character.

    These neon-colors are totally a western sense. I like it personally, but seems most of the Japanese fans has no interest about him. preorder deadline is still extending. :(

    Two redecos out of like sixteen releases isn't much. Even if you count Skywarp.

    I love the colors on this figure, and he has a lot more variety than the typical black redeco.
